Help Protect Lake Memphremagog!
New England Waste Services of Vermont (Casella, Inc.), the owner and operator of the landfill in Coventry, has applied for an amendment to their solid waste certification. If approved, this amendment would allow them to install a facility to remove (only) some of the PFAS and other contaminants that they are currently discharging into the Memphremagog watershed.
No contamination should be discharged in the Memphremagog watershed!!

This is an opportunity to voice your concerns and make recommendations to stop further degradation of the lake and its environment. Ensure that the state will stop and prevent all contaminated waters from flowing into the Memphremagog watershed.
We must protect the lake to restore the lake!
Through our research, monitoring of water quality reports and published testing, testimony to legislators, and our own petitions for improved regulatory and testing policies, we focus on keeping our water clean and healthy for all.
By holding scheduled meetings for stakeholders and the public, participating in press conferences, writing public comments and media articles, we are working hard to inform and engage the public.
Collaboration is a key to accomplishing our goal. Working together with other environmental groups raises our combined knowledge, and provides a strong platform to make the biggest impact.
Please join us in the fight to restore and protect Lake Memphremagog!
